Our Brother Chief Steward Mike Andel will be receiving the BrainUp Bravery Award at their 5K Run/Walk. It is often said patients fight a battle with cancer. In Mike’s case, cancer is waging a war to defeat our Brother who is refusing to back down.
While undergoing treatments since last year Mike has shown incredible courage and commitment to his family and the Sisters and Brothers of IBEW Local Union 21 who he represents. He is an incredible father, husband and Union representative. While many have been assisting our Brother in his recovery, Mike is helping others defeat cancer by joining with BrainUp in their fight to find a cure. His commitment to others is unwavering.
BrainUp is honoring Mike with their Bravery Award during their 5K Run/Walk in Maggie Daley Park from 8:00 am - 11:30 am on Saturday October 13th. Let’s celebrate with Mike.
